Anyone know where I can find for version 11 or 12? I think 12 is the same just countervail only version.

Not sure if no stock because of what is going on in the world or are they discontinued by Wilson?
 
Look up WRG731400 :alien:
Interesting. I noticed the grommet on my red/black RF is different than on my black. The grommet on the black is a bit more solid/wider, has more material in it. So actually, I was thinking about ordering the black grommet, because my red/black racket feels a bit lighter than the black one, and I would "customize" it that way. But apparently that won't work? I feel tempted to give it at go anyway. From e***:

G.O.A.T.
The width of the channels where the strips rest were modified. I believe they will fit, but not rest squarely in the channels. If you do not mind wasting a string job, you could string the frame up with cheap nylon at a higher tension. Then run a hair dryer over the strips to soften them so they will 'curve' into the channel. YMMV. FWIW, my notebook on what fits what is getting entirely too big. :happydevil::cry:

BTW, they are available at other than the auction site in the USA.

But now I put my red/black on top of my black RF. And I am pretty sure that the string spacing is slightly different too. The crosses extend a couple of mms more towards the bottom of the frame, so there is a slightly wider string spacing in the lower crosses. Others might want to chime in, but I am actually pretty sure...
Edit: I now measured. And sure enough, the distance between the outer crosses AND mains is a few millimeters bigger on the black version than on the red. So the black has a slightly more open string pattern. I am really surprised. I hope they have not changed it again on the 13.1 version, it has a new grommet...

I was asking this very question about 2 -3 weeks ago, because I love the 2015 97RF. I had no luck finding the grommets for them. My solution was to just buy the latest version of the 97RF.
There is a tiny bit of difference, but they essentially play the same. Still not a fan of the "Fuzzy Feel" paint though.
